Renowned singer and music composer Shankar Mahadevan and veteran Mandolin player U Shrinivas were in the city to perform in the 10th edition of Chintamani Jayanti Samaroh on Wednesday. The musical programme was organised as a tribute to Padmabhushan late Pandit Chintamani Raghunath Vyas. Comparing the Pune music scene with that in the South, Mahadevan said that even as the city grows and explores modern culture, traditional music is still valued and respected. "When the audience is engrossed in enjoying music, it charges the artist to perform better with added confidence. The Pune audience always gives us that chance," said Mahadevan. When asked about Electric Mandolin and its popularity in the country, Shrinivas said that since Mandolin is not very known in India, it took him years to establish. "Nonetheless, today, I feel happy to see that people who wish to learn Mandolin won't have to struggle finding a teacher for it," he adds.
